Upcoming Services and Sermons

We gather together on Sunday morning to find meaning and live more deeply. Worship creates connections within, among, and beyond us, calling us to our better selves, calling us to live with wisdom and compassion. Most of our Sunday services are led by our Minister, Rev. Heather Rion Starr. We also offer lay led services featuring members and friends who share their thoughts and life experiences.

Hybrid Sunday Service:

  • UUSD is requiring that only vaccinated individuals (who are eligible to be vaccinated against COVID) attend in-person services.
  • Please stay home and enjoy our livestream if you have a fever, any other symptoms of illness, or if it’s simply a better option for you.
  • Mask wearing is encouraged but not required.

Enjoy our livestream service at https://uussd.org/livestream, starting at 9:55 a.m.

A Social Hour is held in the Gathering Area after the Sunday service.

June, 2023 Sermons

Sunday, June 11, 10 a.m., “Music Sunday: Peace and Love from Around the World,” Julie Keefer and the UUSD Choir: Julie Keefer, Director of Music Ministries, will lead the UUSD Choir. Together, they will share songs of peace and love from all over the world. Join us for a blessed time of music, the universal language of every nation!

Sunday, June 18, 10 a.m., “What Holidays Do You Celebrate?” Rev. Heather Rion Starr: What a great question! Not everyone celebrates the same holidays and hearing why certain holidays are particularly important to some people and families can be wonderfully engaging. Perhaps your family has chosen to celebrate Pride and/or Juneteenth, or intentionally chosen not to celebrate a major holiday in “the usual way.” Or perhaps your family has made up a special holiday of your own that you love to tell others about! On this Sunday, join us in celebrating all the things we can.

Wednesday, June 21, 6 p.m., “Summer Solstice Ceremony and Celebration,” Lay Leader Sue Greer:  Come! Celebrate the fullness of Summer in all its abundance, joy, and warmth. We will gather to drum, have a fire ceremony, dance, and offer a clearing blessing of our drums. We will be outside, weather permitting. Bring chairs, drums, and rattles if you have them. (We have some to share). Bring your blessings and prayers for our Earth in thanks for all that is generously given to us so we might live in balance.

Sunday, June 25, 10 a.m. There will be no UUSD-hosted service on this day. Online links will be provided for General Assembly 2023 and for other online services, which you may watch at your leisure.
